Would it be possible in future versions for braces to be outlined, like:
if i select/go to the closing brace the opening brace row would be
outlined indicating its the opening one to me. Would also work for ()
After the small features request, here is a big one ;)
I'm sure we talked about it here, but I don't remember if this is
planned or not.
Actually, I use TextMate for everything text-related except one thing:
comparing two document(Diff).
Unfortunately I need this feature a lot. For me, this is "The Last Big
Thing" that TM misses.
The best solution I found so far is to have a command launching
TextWrangler to compare the active one and one I have to choose(w/Cocoa
1) The way to launch this is a bit clumsy. (Having to navigate thru an
2) Having TextWrangler opened just for that sucks a bit.
3) Having to edit the files in TW really sucks. I miss all the TM
goodness and It makes me feels I'm back in time. ;)
(And worst of all, I use TM shortcuts all the time and wonder why my
commands, snippets, etc. don't work 8-| )
4) This doesn't work with remote files, or I have to open them in TW.
Meaning changing the prefs of my SFTP client.
What I like in the "Compare two front documents" feature of TW:
-The full screen is shared by the two docs with the Differences window
-You can navigate easily thru the diffs.
-Closing the Differences window brings the docs back where they were.
-It exists. ;)
You can even check differences of folders and batch files.
So, my question is:
Do you plan to implement this in TM, Allan?
If the answer is yes, any idea when we might expect this?
Meanwhile, does anybody have a better solution?
I've found myself using TM for almost every single thing that I write,
so sometimes I like to be able to create a new TM document in the
current Finder window.
Had a look at trying to create a Contextual Menu plug-in, but it looked
too complicated, so does anyone have a suggestion for how to do this ??

I have already got skEdit and really like its implementation of the file
chooser thing I was proposing, its pretty much what I was trying to
in TM ;). However I have to agree that although it is a very good

We'll have to wait for commands to output to a contextual menu to fully
realise some of the potential of these ideas, but when it is supported I
think there will be a lot of great tools available to us.

I know that could be achieved as a macro but I'd like to see a key to
exchange the character under the cursor and the next one, à la ^T under

Maybe it would be a bit harder than I thought to make it backwards
compatible. Keep thinking about it though.
The reason I asked for it in the first place is that I was making a script
to insert filenames into textmate, a bit like pressing tab in terminal.
Sometimes I would get more than one result, and I wanted those to appear in
a list. Now I've been thinking about it though, it might be a nice thing to
have this behaviour built into Textmate.
An example would be that if you typed in an html document: "href='i" and
then pressed tab, you could invoke a menu which showed files matching 'i.*'.
It could even be multi-dimensional as in my included mock-up.
I hadn't really thought of the possibilities for the contextual menu, I
really thought of it for choosing a list of snippets to insert after a
selection. If it could run commands as well, that would be very cool.
XML sounds like a good way of generating the list, I don't use it that much,
but couldn't each 'menu item' have 'input', 'output' and 'action' children
to define what it should do?
Would it be possible for you to make a menu that just had a list of snippets
at the moment, which could be further expanded in the future? I look forward
to any progress in this regard.
Keep up the great work,
Would it be possible to make a command output option that displays as a
menu. It would be like the current behaviour of commands, snippets etc that
have the same key command.
You could then have commands like 'ls $TM_FILEPATH', and choose from the
